‘Prayer Request: For Christmas 2017’ (2017)

If all goes well with this post–and it hasn’t so far: not by a long shot!–you’ll be reading it as Patty and I zip down the Garden State Parkway for Christmas dinner at my sister’s house.

We’ll probably be back before dark, because I don’t like to drive on the Parkway at night and the local traffic’s even worse–all the nimrods cruising around with their high-beams on, trying to blind you.

I hope some of you are able to visit here today, and enjoy a carol or two.

The carol which I am attempting to post above is Charles Wesley’s Light of the World, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. It’s one of my favorite hymns, and I’m bumbling around with it today. Let’s just see if I can get it posted, shall we?


‘Light of the World’ (John 1)

This is the only true light for us sinners–Jesus Christ Our Savior, the only light that saves us and lights our way.

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.  –John 1:4-5

Light of the World, by Charles Wesley; sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.


‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind my posting this again, one of my favorite hymns–Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I need Christ’s light, this sabbath day.


‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind my posting this again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–it’s one of my favorites.

I’ll post your favorite hymns, too. All you’ve got to do is ask.


‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind me posting this hymn again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is a pretty dark world without the light of Jesus Christ!


+’Light of the World’

The only excuse I have for posting this hymn umpteen times is, I love it: Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed (18th century style) by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I’m really sorry they took down the video that used to go with it.

The “+” in front of the title was a typographical error which I thought it better to let stand–as a cross.


‘Light of the World’

I can’t help posting this hymn again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

‘Light of the World’

Lord, we need your light!

I like the title of this album by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band: “Sing Lustily and with Good Courage.” Or, as I once heard a wise woman say on the radio, “When things get dark, and you don’t know what to do–sing louder!”

Light of the World, by Charles Wesley: for the true Light, that lighteth everyone that cometh into the world.


‘Light of the World’

O Jesus Christ Our Lord, it’s dark down here! Way dark! Be thou our light, O Son of God. You are the light the darkness can’t put out, that lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

This thought came to me yesterday: We live by God’s word or not at all.

Hymn by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.


A Favorite Hymn, ‘Light of the World’

If you’ve been here a while, you know I’m crazy for this hymn–Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I was whistling it as I rode my bike this morning.

Jesus Christ, “the true light, that lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:9)–the only light, I dare say, by which we truly see.
